Mitja Sirk’s wine story opens with an extraordinary chapter. At age 11, with the encouragement of Josko Gravner, Mitja made his first wine. Over seven vintages, under the master’s eye, he refined his understanding of Friuli’s past and potential. With time and experience, he has narrowed his focus to one grape: Friulano. He works with old vines, ponca soils, traditional trellising, and clean farming. In the cellar, he has moved away from extended skin contact, toward long lees aging and batonnage, for a style that is, in his words, “very clear and direct” and a voice that is distinctively his.

Winemaking
The wine’s alcoholic fermentation begins in steel tanks, with a simple cold removal of the lees. The wine is aged an additional 6-7 months with light lees stirring for the first 4-5 weeks of elevage.
